About Us

Our Ethos

Our 7 branches cover England and Scotland and are run from 4 small farms, which are based out in the gorgeous countryside of Cornwall, Kent, Norfolk and North Yorkshire. Each farm is family run with many years of small-scale poultry keeping/breeding experience.

Our company strives to have a positive social and environmental impact and this ethos underpins everything we do:

  • Education
  • Animal Welfare
  • Safeguarding Biodiversity
  • Wildlife Conservation
  • Supporting Charity

With 9 years experience working successfully with many hundreds of schools, nurseries and care homes, Incredible Eggs is a proven name you can trust, whether you are a confident old hand or an anxious first-timer hatcher.

Education

We aim to provide a first-rate professional service which results in valuable and meaningful learning. We do this by providing an incredible experience and quality resources, backed up with expert advice and support.

Animal Welfare

We are advocates of ‘old school’, low intensity traditional smallholder farming methods – as close as possible to what nature intended. We have the facilities, knowledge and experience in place to get it right and which enables us to responsibly offer this service.

Settings may choose to sign over ownership to us at the end of the hatching experience. We NEVER sell more hatching eggs than we can comfortably accommodate as birds after the hire period is over or put pressure on settings to re-home the birds themselves.

Safeguarding Biodiversity

As well as rearing the more practical hybrid and utility strains of poultry, we preserve heritage pure and rare breeds.

Some of these are now so low in number that they are listed as ‘at risk’ by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.

The survival of these old breeds with their wonderful histories, variations, characters and quirks is often entirely dependent upon human support.

Wildlife Conservation

We are working alongside specialist breeders, farmers and landowners to increase the numbers of Grey Partridges in the wild. This once common native bird is now on the Birds of Conservation Concern ‘red list’. Red is the highest conservation priority, with species needing urgent action.

Our ‘hatch-for release’ partridge kits offer key stage 2+ the opportunity to get involved with a real, live wildlife conservation project.

We support this charity by promoting their work and fundraising events throughout England and Scotland and via our own donations.
